Adam Sterling told journalists that American companies that sell defense equipment to other states must obtain license from the State Department and submit a list of countries to which they are engaged in the sale.

"One American private company, referring to the State Department withdrew Azerbaijan from its list", - he said.

The diplomat refused to disclose the name of the company.

Sterling said that between the U.S. and Azerbaijan have long been established broad cooperation in the field of security.

He stressed that in this sphere between Azerbaijan and the United States has been no change.

It should be noted, according to data of the Armenian National Committee of America, the U.S. State Department ruled Azerbaijan from a list of countries that will be sold to the American military equipment, and refused to official Baku to sell the necessary parts for military helicopters. The question was raised after a letter sent to Congress by the representative of the Democratic Party in the House on Foreign Relations Harvard Berman.
